Waiting for the arrival of Spring

Even though I know the calender says it is
We are all patiently waiting for the arrival of Spring,
so let’s create our own impressions of it.
Using a Ranger #12 Giant Tag  ( measures 5 1/8" x 10.25") or cut your own. Create a pretty spring tag.  Use your stamps, flowers, die cuts, pretty ribbons and or any of your embellishments whatever you would like to create a spring setting. You can go over the edges of the tag, but remember we are mailing this so use your judgement.
The tag is due to me (Doris Santore) by Friday, April 26.

Swapping out some Inchies

Thanks for joining the swap! We definitely have some cute Inchies here to swap out. Now that the storm is over, they will be going out :)

Fran's Inchies - the designs on black felt really make it pop out. I think she did darn well with her sewing!

Janice made her Inchies using fabric and glittery accents. I even see some embroidery stitches I recognize like French knots.

Miriam is true to form using vintage photos, bits of mica, as well as shells and ephemera.


Maura likes to play with color, so that is what I did with mine.

Great little swap, ladies! I loved seeing your takes on this one!
